Jakarta, February 17, 2019 --- Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) and Trisakti University Alumni Association (IKA USAKTI) collaborated to invite USAKTI alumni to become more easily connected to each other and better-informed about the latest progress in banking services through the BNI Trisakti Connect Festival 2019 Grand Reunion event held on Feb. 17th at Istora Senayan, Jakarta.
In this event, BNI invited its affiliates to showcase their newest products to USAKTI alumni who graduated from 1965 as well as recent graduates. They offered banking products that were suitable for different ages. A number of promotion programs were presented to encourage USAKTI alumni to use up-to-date BNI products.
To highlight the cooperation between the two parties, BNI and IKA USAKTI grasped this grand reunion opportunity to sign a memorandum of understanding on the provision and use of banking services. And at the same time they established a cooperation agreement for the issuance and management of IKA USAKTI membership cards and insurance program management agreement. These agreements will allow BNI to embed a variety of digital services within the Trisakti Connect Application. This application was built by USAKTI to get their alumni better connected, while BNI makes it easier for them to access digital banking services.
Director of institutional relations Adi Sulistyowati said the Trisakti Connect Application was an application that supported liaison and fostered ties among alumni. While the IKA USAKTI debit card issued by BNI will complete the application and be prepared as a multifunctional card, including membership identity and shopping cards connected to member savings accounts, and TapCash cards and insurance coverage benefits. Trisakti alumni who are currently using student identity cards from BNI can simply convert their student identity cards into IKA USAKTI alumni debit cards free of charge.
"The program that we offer is also supported by BNI Life in providing various insurance management programs," he added.
This positive activity is expected to be continued regularly starting this year and will be an annual event for Trisakti University alumni from various classes and departments to get together. The activities are also expected to build closeness and camaraderie among the alumni and to contribute to the betterment of the alma mater and nation.
Protection for Alumni
On the occasion of this grand reunion, a cooperation agreement between BNI Life and IKA USAKTI, the Insurance Management Program, was also formalized. This product is life insurance specifically designed for IKA USAKTI providing 24-hour protection.
Financial service solutions in the early stages include the issuance of IKA USAKTI debit cards. In addition, there are bill payment and purchase features through the Trisakti Connect application that can be downloaded through Play Store and Apps Store by all members of IKA USAKTI. The future collaboration will not rule out the possibility of developing other financial solutions through the applications.
Currently there are more than 150,000 members of IKA USAKTI nationwide and overseas. In addition to providing financial service solutions, the Trisakti Connect Application can also provide information among the community, news and other payment features.
